Leuce could help smile through her sadness, at the innocence and inventiveness of the child, she couldn't remember much of her own child hood, but she was sure to never have been as imaginative as the young Goddess. 'Yes I can make a beard for your doll. It will look even more like you,' she affirmed getting busy on the unnamed doll. 'Please Zeus, please give them life,' she added presenting the doll to the air. Leuce froze in terror and dread at the mere mention of the child's father.
I was procrastinating on my Mom’s request because this meant my childhood was moving in another direction. As I hesitantly stack each Barbie away I reminisce about the years of entertainment, comfort, and creativity these dolls have provided. In the bottom of the bin, I uncover Rapunzel. My eyes swell with tears as my heart begins to pound. I am transported back to when I was six-years-old and she was my favorite Barbie.
When Things Were Normal When I was little my mother always told me in her soft mom voice you get when your friend stole your doll or you fell of the monkey bars “the best is always going to seem bad at first but eventually everything will be great.” Then i would curl up in her arms and sit there because she gave the best hugs. The ones that make you warm inside, it makes you want to be nice to that grumpy old mrs. perkins that lives across the street with her ten cats. My mother was that kind of person but ever since my mom and dad got divorced everything has changed. Not just at home though, my life will never be the same and i don’t know if ‘eventually it will be great’. The first sound i hear in the morning is that annoying “errrrrriiiiinnggg!”
Even if the company claimed that Tokidoki Tattoo Barbie is for adult collection, the company sells Totally Stylin ' Tattoos Barbie, which came complete with removable sticker tattoos and a 'tattoo gun ' stamp. The Barbie dolls have very slim physical appearance which influences the child into wanting to have perfect body shape like Barbie. Children like to emulate adult figures and Barbie dolls become their role models. For example, in her interview in 1977, Ruth Hander, the co-founder of Mattel company acknowledged this fact by stating “Every little girl needed a doll through which to project herself into her dream of her future,…If she was going to do role playing of what she would be like when she was 16 or 17, it was a little stupid to play with a doll that
Hysteria was considered a medical condition which rendered a woman incapable of reason or generally thinking like an adult. However, because of societal standards at this time, women were already typically treated like children. In the “Yellow Wallpaper”, Charlotte Perkin Gilman criticizes infantilism of women in Victorian society through Jane’s childlike actions, John’s interactions with her, and the symbolism of her staying in the nursery. Throughout the story, Jane is compared to, or acts like a child. On page three of the text, Gilman writes that Jane used to be easily entertained by blank walls and furniture than most children could find in toy stores.
“After an hour and thirty minutes her daughter has become part Barbie, part Madame Alexander doll, and part Las Vegas showgirl” (Hollandsworth 1). These shows strip the girls of their childish innocents and use their oblivion to do so. They cannot process, with their undeveloped brains, to tell the difference between right and wrong in how they compete in the pageants. They base their worth by their appearance rather than what they are capable of doing. They grow up without a real identity and are only use to being exploited for how they look and

Miss Brill was so upset in the end that she did not even get her Honey Cake. She so was proud of her fur. She took it out of the box that she kept it in and brushed it every day before she would wear it. All Miss Brill wants is for people to loves one another. She does not the lady complaining, the woman throwing away the violets, nor the man blowing smoke into a ladies face.
If a person never gets compliments and they are bullied, a simple complement like “Your hair looks nice.” can make their day. If there is this girl who is the queen bee and has never been gives an insult all of her life and someone goes you to her and says that she is fat she might brush it off in front of people but, it really, it affects her deep down and she might go home and cry. You never can know how words affect people. Different words can affect different people in different ways. In “The Book Thief” Liesel Meminger loved books.
The media is responsible for young girls becoming self conscious after buying thin Barbie dolls, thinking being skinny, fake and blonde is the correct way to go. They are also to blame as they are selling beauty products in magazines making these young girls think they need it for the better. However they have not realised that if Barbie was a real women she would be brutally skin-and-bone that she would not have enough energy to walk up a flight of stairs rather she may have to drag herself up the stairs or go up on both hands and legs. Is this what women really want? To be left weak and in a horrible state just so they think they look good when really they
Be careful of what you wish for, thought Coraline when the Other Mother asked to stay forever in the fantastic Other World, but there was only one condition—to sew buttons over her own eyes.

In the novel this quote “I pop the head off the Barbie doll…… I place a piece of tape over the Barbie’s mouth.”(63) was an example of figurative languages. The figurative languages was a metaphor. Though Melinda the main character did not make the connection about her and the doll by her doing those stuff to the doll shows the reader that, that 's how she feels about herself and her ability to speak (communicate). It communicates a feeling better then it would if the metaphor was just written plain out saying that she hates herself and feels like her silents controls her.
Sadly, I didn’t always have someone to play with because I was the only girl in the house other than my mother. One thing that Tica and myself did similar as children was playing with the dollhouse. When Tica was shearing her story she said that her and her cousin would “imitate” their mothers using the dolls. She said that they would do things like pretend that the dolls were sleeping and they would then get the dolls up and they would “drive” to work and things like that. Those are some of the thing that I would do with my dolls, the only difference would be me not using crayons as markers for where the street, sidewalks, and light polls were.
Margo feels that an unfair label is put on a girl once she decides to join the sisterhood of a sorority. “Some people put you up on a pedestal and some people think you are less than them,” she said, “Movies have portrayed sorority girls as silly and dumb girls and that’s why we still have that reputation.” Her parents and siblings have inspired her to be confident despite the harsh world that girls live in today. When she was little, she was free to play with both the boys in the backyard and the dolls in her bedroom. “I wasn’t a girly girl or a tomboy. I liked both,” she said.
